I just got off of it and it me REALLY messed up... like forgetting, getting EXTREMELY tired about a half hour after taking, irritation, angry sometimes, more anxiety attacks... it was bad.... I tried to stick through it, but after 4 or 5 months on it, not successful and way too difficult to cope with!
